Windows xp won't connect to internet thru modem

Hello, I have a problem with connecting to my cable internet modem with my windows xp machine. My windows vista computer automatically connects as soon as you connect it to the modem but the windows xp machine gives the "limited or no connectivity" error when I try to connect. What could be causing it to work with vista and not xp? what can I try to make it work? any help would be highly appreciated
